Introductions to Sections and Linking

Recording Date: 11/01/2012
Duration: 25 min


Most programmers know that compilers place output into sections and that a linker is run to position objects into memory, but have little idea of how it all works. This webinar takes a very graphical look at the job of the linker in MPLAB XC8 and how it positions the sections used to hold all code and data. The small, banked 8-bit devices are the most likely PIC devices to encounter memory-related linker errors. This webinar explains why this is the case, and what you can do to minimise this occurring.
